Lupe Fiasco ft. Matthew Santos: Shining Down

1 Mar

Here’s another leak from LASERS! “Shining Down” is a powerful, intellectual social commentary on society’s shortcomings. The song features Matthew Santos, my favorite Lupe-collaborator. Been a fan of Santos’ work for some time now, especially the emotionally-charged performances he laid down on 2006’s Food & Liquor (“American Terrorist“) and 2007’s The Cool (“Superstar,” “Streets on Fire,” and “Fighters“).

BEST LINE: “We’re trapped, and moving round in circles like it’s chap stick / And that’s the same encircled way of thinking that we chat with / We’ll rap this, around your head like the bandannas Fabolous used to wrap his hat’s with / Rather being Feds instead of National Geographics / Well, I’m not having it, now.”
